Publisher's Summary

Investigating a noise in the attic of her historic home, Maggie Holliday encounters a handsome man in a Civil War uniform. He calls her "Isabel", seduces her in ways the shy academic had never dreamed of, then literally vanishes.

With every fleeting visit, Maggie's mysterious lover, Ethan, takes her closer to the edge of ecstasy and madness. Is he really a ghost? Far from chilling her, his touch is incendiary; it all feels so real and so very, very good. And so very familiar.

Ethan insists Maggie's the reincarnation of his long-lost love. And after a few incredible nights in his arms, Maggie is inclined to believe him. But does she dare surrender to a passion that transcends time, tragedy, and even death?

I liked it

can I just say that if you like corny romance books you will like this one and sorry but sometimes that is just what the doctor ordered to put you in a romantic mood when life is going so fast and stressful that you need to have a read that will whisk you away and this was one of those times for me and I enjoyed this book yes its predictable but its also fun and interesting, I hope that you enjoy this read

Entertaining love story through time.

This was a sexy and enjoyable love story across time, albeit some parts were absolutely unbelievable and hard to swallow. I'm not talking about loving a ghost, I did not have a problem with that. What I found hard to accept was Maggie's abusive boyfriend and how long she put up with him. I also found her reaction to a stranger in the attic on a stormy night incredulous. Any sane woman would be screaming/running/fighting him off rather than kissing him. Hope Tarr has another audiobook called "Bound To Please" that I recommend first. Nevertheless, The Haunting was a good listen with some steamy love scenes.

surprisingly good

I was surprised to have enjoyed this book so much. The plot seemed so unbelievable, but I found myself actually thinking this could be PLAUSIBLE. It was both romantic and sometimes erotic. I was not disappointed.

Predictable, but cute...

The haunting is a sweet, somewhat predictable novel. If you are in the mood for a few hours of simple entertainment, then by all means, this is it...
If, however, you are expecting something...you may be disappointed.

A hauntingly sweet tale.

I enjoyed this read. A softly sexy tale of ghosts, love, and a search for the truth set in a very well researched historical town.

Just OK for me..

Any additional comments?

This was nothing special and I'm still wondering how I feel about the end. The author didn't seem to care how stupidly people talked sometimes. I was rolling my eyes constantly.
The narrator did an ok job with the voices but really had no emotion.
I wouldn't recommend this book but someone else might think it's terrific. It's all a matter of your taste in books.

Loved every word!

This story combined a love story, ghost story & a wonderful old house. It's not a scary story if your looking for that. The narrator was awesome & passionate and made the story come to life for me.
